sorry folks, it's updated, it seems gftp and the website are having problems so i'm rebuilding the latest filezilla which I know works!
Problems so far with 08 are:
-missing libphonon and gstreamer libs - will go in 09
-a couple of application icons - will go in 09
09's listed work (as well as bugfixes) is:
09 will also have the basics of qlwm, a very quick and small qt desktop (first of two qt desktops to be added. jwm2 will stay forever as I consider it puppy's standard desktop.;
09 will loose firefox as the latest qtweb app build seems to be stable and working well, that should shrink it by a decent bit;
09 will have listed applications in the menu system for a number of internally available apps (I may need someone to build gtk front ends for others at some stage, if anyone wants to tentively put their hand up for early next year);
09 will have Qt Creator added for those who wish to try building their own qt apps (if you know at least html you can build) Qt Creator also has the ability to cross-platform, so what is built could potentially be used by barry's new arm system;
09 will have a menu change for jwm to split development applications in it's own menu group (if I can remember how I did it last time). Reason is, the development group that is currently in Utilities is going to explode as it currently contains Development, Building, Debugger, IDE, Profiling, Translation and GUIDesigner in the one block as well as all the utilities and I have qt4 'stuff' for all of them.
For now, at this stage, I just need some basic testing on different boxes and laptops.
